Howdy gang,

How do I eliminate the automatic retraction function of the kickstand on my '97 M750?

Thanks for your time.

Happy New Year.

With either a replacement bolt like this

or by swapping the boomerang shaped spring retainer with a different one (haven't seen one in a few years) that will not keep tension on the kickstand spring when the stand is down.

IMO, get the Nichols bolt and be done with it.

I remember I wanted to change mine out until I rode my girlfirends monster that does not have the retractable kickstand. That stand made me a little nervous. Now I love and respect my retractable kick stand except on a hill. dc

It will/would replace the extended head allen bolt that fastens the kickstand. With that much flatter (read doesn't actuate the auto retraction spring)

See the image (take from the Haynes book) below. And the image below shows the sidestand in the UP position.
